Colin Furze, the English loon responsible for the fire-breathing moped, has released yet another cracked creation. Furze, 31, who makes his money as a plumber, built a 72-foot-long moped that seats 25, videotaped himself riding it, and send the footage to the Guinness Book of World Records.

According to reports, Furze has hit 35 miles per hour on the elongated scooter, built from the remains of one and a half 125cc mopeds and more than 50 feet of frame extension. For right now, it simply holds passengers (read: doesn't move them), but with some chassis and suspension mods, it should be able to ferry them around under power.

      does it really count if you need a wooden block to hold the middle off the ground ?

      As long as it counts on that block to keep the middle from resting on the ground, it shouldn't count.

      Truly harkens back to traditions of great British automotive engineering... ...they even included a brick in the middle as an indespensable feature of suspension....

      love that 8" x 8" block of wood holding it up, I think for that reason it should be discounted from Guiness because if you look forward of the block there is severe bending and would be touching the ground without it. Some people should have not have 15seconds of fame let alone 15minutes, obviously this plumber felt outdone by Joe the Plumber and had to come up with this waste of time. It gives plumbers a bad name

      So basically this is nothing more than a long park bench.

        I would have asked "What's so special about a bike that needs a block in the middle to keep from sagging with 23 people on it"...

      Next time, wait 'til it works to bother covering it.

      Also, your 25-person scooter only holds 23...

      as long as pointless crap like this gets created, economically we are probably ok

      He said it will seat 25, but maybe he could only find 22 others to risk their lives to even sit on it.
